NFAIS 2018 Annual Conference

In recent years, dramatic changes in scholarly publishing have altered how researchers consume, exchange, interact with, and disseminate scholarly communications. These dramatic changes will leave a footprint on global scholarship of the future but presently are plagued by diverging views, and therefore, potentially diverging paths toward the same goals. The NFAIS 2018 Annual Conference will examine where we have been, the forces that impact future directions, who the players are, and how we create a future where the researchers gain value through the roles each stakeholder plays toward a successful transformation. The conference takes an in-depth view of this information transformation, and the drive towards more open, global, and collaborative.
